"We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums."

After what turned out to be a complete PR nightmare, the voices of the fans have been heard and the requirement for real names on forums is not going to happen. Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime put the word out just a short while ago, but he had quite a bit more to say about Blizzard's plans for the future.

Check out the full post on the World of Warcraft forums for all the details.
